Just logged in to my Google Adsense account today and I've seen a small message saying that: "The wait is over - Firefox referrals are now available internationally!"
This is very good, the FireFox referral program was available only to US Adsense users for like a month or so, but not internationally. I'm glad now I'm able to put on my blogs a "Get FireFox with Google Toolbar" button. They're cute and honestly some of the ads have somehow a display related to the iPod.
So why the fuss about this? Well first of all, when a user downloads and installs Firefox through your referral, Google credits your account with up to $1.00. Of course, a Firefox referral is counted when a Windows user, who has not previously installed Firefox, downloads and runs the program for the first time.
Second of all, everybody has something with Bill and his browser, especially Google. So they're trying to cut down Internet Explorer's share by promoting FireFox. There are a lot of discussions about which browser is better and which is worse but the facts remain: Internet Explorer is still no. 1 with about 89% of the share and FireFox is somewhere around 8% (but with more than 100 million downloads).
If you have a blog or a website don't lose this opportunity, put on your website a FireFox referral button and start increasing your AdSense revenue. If you don't know what Google AdSense is I suggest clicking on the button from the right menu (that Adsense button) and creating an account:
:), yes, there is a referral promotion for Google AdSense too: "When a publisher that signed up for AdSense through your referral earns their initial $100.00 and is eligible for payout, we'll credit your account with $100.00" says Google.
